My last sausage roll

It's time to start thinking more seriously about what goes in me gob. That doesn't mean that I'm going to turn into a food nazi and cut everything out. For example I'm not going to completely cut out chocolate because I'm not sure that I could. But it does mean that I'm going to start considering the nutritional value of the food I'm eating a little more than I was. Which means that some things might have to go.

Now I'm not planning on going all vegan or anything - although I do enjoy a good vegan restaurant - but I will be trying to make sure that I have a nice balanced diet. That I get my five fruit and veg a day and that I am eating everything in moderation. One thing that does have to go though - as much as it pains me to say this - is... sausage rolls.

Anybody that knows me knows that this really isn't going to be an easy ask of me. I love sausage rolls!!! They've always been a major weakness for me. I used to be super fussy with food. That has changed a lot in the last few years. My diet is a lot more varied that it was and I generally eat a fairly healthy diet. I eat a good amount of fruit and veg and sea food is now one of my favourite things.

But like most people I still love to eat crap too. I have an insanely ferocious sweet tooth and a taste for pies, pasties and takeaways. But top of my list of weaknesses. Above sweets, chocolate, cake, biscuits, fish & chips and KFC is a good old Sayers sausage roll. Anyone who does/hasn't lived in the North West has properly never heard of Sayers. Which is strange because they're "so fresh we're famous". But take it from me that they make the BEST sausage rolls. Of course it doesn't have to be a Sayers sausage roll, as long as it's a sausage roll of some kind I'll eat it. Greggs make a pretty good sausage roll, as do Morrisons and it's hard to beat the hot ones you sometimes find in corner shops. But in my opinion it's Sayers that make the best and that is why I've just made a special little trip down to buy two (buy one get one free) from "the better bakers"

And that was it. My last sausage roll for sometime... maybe ever! (very doubtful).

  1. But why??? Compared to sugar, sausage rolls are pretty nutritious! And you'll definitely need the calories when you're swimming across the Channel. But I suppose you can't take your own personal baker into the water haha.

    Thanks for the read, by the way - your project is very inspiring.
